The four award categories are:

The awards ceremony will take place on the evening of the first day of the European Rental Association annual convention. 

The judging panel for the prestigious awards includes senior representatives from rental companies, manufacturers and rental associations in Europe, plus two members from the award organisers – ERA and KHL Group, which is the publisher of International Rental News.

The judges will meet at ERA’s Secretariat office in Brussels, Belgium, on 18 March, 2015, to determine the shortlisted companies and winners.

The awards are open to any company operating in Europe, and companies do not have to be members of ERA to enter.
